Always been soda or Carbonate on my end, but down in the south everything is a coke, "You want a coke with that?" I will always remember my dad when
we first moved down here and that question was asked he said, "Can I get a Dr. Pepper instead?" Hilarious.
I grew up calling all soda "coke", til i realized it wasn't. Now I call it soda, but mostly I just say the brand of the soda. When I was a
bartender, one older gentleman called soda- "sodee water" every time he ordered which always made me smile. That's the south for ya
i grew up and am living in ontario canada, everyone here calls it pop.
when i go to visit my friend in alaska everyone there calls it soda, and when im gaming alot and on ventrilo (voice chat program), and say be right
back getting a pop people sometimes laugh at me and are like what is a pop?
they call it soda, americans, mostly from california
Funny I was going to make a thread similar to this yesterday(?) for the same reason; "gas vs petrol" thread.
Soda for me, as I grew up in the deep south. While I don't live there now, I am still used to saying soda in the north. I also, say coke(ie, also
used in the South...Coca Cola), which often gets people looking at me funny as if I'm talking of something other than a soft drink.
Pop is what most people I've ever met in my area call it, my area being Oregon.
Some people really call it fizzy drink or sodee pop? I think I would LOL if someone said that. No offense intended, it just sounds funny to me
I have not ever heard or someone calling it "carbonate" but I REALLY like that! I think I'm going to start calling pop "carbonate" "Hey can I
get a carbonate?" "WHAT?" LOL Just watch, it will be big here in the PNW within a few years. I urge my fellow PNWers to start this as well.
I grew up in Appalachia myself, and it is called "soda." I never heard it called "pop" until I moved to Indiana, Yankee country. Thankfully, I am
not in the South again, above the big river, but south, nonetheless. I still call it soda.
Hey there!...I grew up in the Pacific Northwest too....when I was growing up we called it soda-pop....so in my neighborhood we used both terms. I
absolutely loved root beer floats...with Dad's root beer and a scoop of vanilla ice cream...what a treat!
